When I got to the city limits on the West side of town, I stopped at the city limits sign. People are always asking me how big Wichita Falls Texas is..I know it fluctuates between the high 90's and low 100 thousand..So here is the current population. It has 200 police officers and 12 of those are motorcycle traffic officers. So, be careful with the speed because those guys are everywhere. They ride the new Harley police bikes
As I started up US287 (West) I started taking pics of the bikes going East. No bikes passed me going West. If you click on the pic you can see the bikes better. All of them were doing the recognition signal and I had to hold the camera straight out at them, so they didn't think I was snubbing them. Bad thing was that doing it that way, I couldn't get them centered..
Another of Angelo South bound. Around this area we were doing about 75-80 mph. Angelo cracked his throttle open and was gone. Then, he slowed down and I caught up with him and he downshifted to 4th and did it again and the boy was gone even faster. His bike, is addition to looking and sounding great, is unbelievably fast.
